Join us on our birding tour across beautiful New Zealand. Leaving from Auckland and ending in Christchurch, this 12-day tour covers both the North and South Islands and takes in all the best birding spots including we aim to visit such places as Tiritiri Matangi, Miranda, the Central Plateau and Pureora Forest, Manawatu Estuary, Kaikoura, the South Island west coast and glaciers, Fiordland, Twizel and Central Otago.
New Zealand has many unique bird species and we’ll be looking for representatives of the endemic families – kiwis, NZ parrots, NZ wrens, NZ wattlebirds, NZ creepers, and the stitchbird; in addition, expect species such as Wrybill, New Zealand pigeon, Keas, Kakas, Shags, Wekas and Tuis, Penguins, and even Bellbirds and a variety of seabirds – including Albatrosses – during a half-day pelagic. Expect to see over 120 species: this trip is surely a treat that shouldn’t be missed!
An optional pelagic trip, and an optional visit to Stewart Island, can be added onto the tour.
